I’m shocked how quickly I became a murderous opium addict in this saloon management sim

I’ve played plenty of Western games—Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, Westerado: Double Barreled—typically casting myself as a steely-eyed gunslinger capable of mowing down outlaws and lawmen alike with a flurry of bullets from my shining six-shooters. 

But is that really me? If I were really in the Old West, would I be the deadliest, bravest cowboy in history? Doubtful. I’d probably be the portly saloonkeeper, wincing and fretting whenever a brawl breaks out around the poker table and far more likely to say the words “I ain’t lookin’ fer no trouble, Mister!” then I am to say “Draw, Pilgrim.”
